Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
« on: June 20, 2019, 09:21:35 AM »
I was in a store over the weekend in the Toronto area, and spoke to a manager and he said his computer is only showing 300 units for this Scu# for all of Canada.
I read about two weeks ago that the count was around 700-800 so I guess they are already almost out stock.

I'm sure we will see all of these come the fall, I think Tru, like Target, just got the initial exclusivity for Fathersday.

Very nice book that definitely appeals to the collectors.

But honestly, I have no room for my toys, yet alone books about toys. And I mean, it's nice, but do I really need it? It's not that I don't know my TVC stuff. I have that stuff. The pictures look great... but to me, it looks more like a catalog than a real piece of art. I mean: I have these figures. I have them MOC and loose. Why the hell would I need a book that shows toys in a very straightforward and non scene specific way?

Do I really need this

Do I ever wished it was created?

No and no.

The book does look slick. I almost fell for the trap to be honest. But then I realized it would be pushing my consumerism obsession to the limit: buying a book that acts as a catalog of the toys I bought. It's not nostalgia, it's in fact way past nostalgia, it would be almost like revealing to myself a huge mental flaw (that I have, obviously, looking at the 60k$ worth of toys I bought over the last 23 years). That's when I simply told myself: no, that's too much. Not for me. Control yourself buddy, it's way too much...

Then I just went to the store to buy the Retro figures to calm myself down.

 :speechless-smiley-004: :P

JediPatrick says it best IMO.  I couldn't agree with you anymore JP!
I was close to getting one, and your name printed in the book is cool and all, but I can pass on this and grab some retro Stormtroopers instead.  :sw2:

I just picked up a retro set at my local tru, love them in person!
Seems that many trus around me 75kms have one box of six figs only at the moment.
Use the scu# above and call, ask them to check the system first, most stores I bet still don't have them on the floor.

Guys, I'm hearing a rumour that the 3.75" Retro Collection has hit an Ottawa TRU.
Can anyone confirm that the retro figs are hitting TRU now?
And SCU# if possible.   :u:

Wow, I had 3 in my cart to have free shipping, checked out and all were removed and now can't add them anymore. Of the 3 I wanted, I wanted to keep one and help fellow snowtroopers in my region with the other 2.
Wow that was quick!  Must have only had one box of eight.
